Michigan International Speedway Hosts NASCAR Sprint Cup Sunday

Michigan International Speedway Hosts NASCAR Sprint Cup Sunday

Hyped by on August 18, 2012 Website: www.thesportsnotebook.com

The NASCAR Sprint Cup series comes to Michigan International Speedway on Sunday (Noon ET, ESPN) for the Pure Michigan 400, as four more races remain for drivers to position themselves for, or qualify for, the Sprint For The Cup that concludes the season.

Jimmie Johnson is now the points leader for the first time this season, quite a turnaround from the points penalty he took in February for essentially driving a car on steroids. JJ only leads Greg Biffle and Matt Kenseth by one and two points respectively, although as we’ve discussed in previous race previews, the scoring system for the playoffs make the standings cosmetic and total wins more important. In that area, Johnson, Brad Keselowski and Tony Stewart continue to lead the field with three outright wins and if the Sprint For The Cup started today these three drivers would be tied for first when the standings get the re-set button hit
